Sister Nancy – Big Beat Bam (1993)

In 1993, as dancehallโ€™s crossover popularity seemed to be peaking, Big Beat Records launched a short-lived reggae imprint, Big Beat Reggae. One of the labelโ€™s first releases was a 12โ€ featuring this hip-hop remix of โ€œBam Bamโ€ handled by influential New York radio and club DJ, Stretch Armstrong. The version, along with the original โ€œBam Bamโ€ recording, would also appear on the 1993 compilation, Buyaka: The Ultimate Dance Hall Collection.
